Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2014 has a small, but significant number of transmission complaints at low mileage. The issue is part of a class-action lawsuit that says the Pathfinder's transmission shakes violently during acceleration between 15mph and 30mph.

Recall 16V-244. I was notified in may about this recall by Nissan but no parts are still available for repair. This is an air-bag safety issue. Nissan needs to made this recall a higher priority.

I have received two safety recall notices from Nissan stating that I need to take my vehicle in to get a passenger airbag issue corrected. However, I took my car to auto nation Nissan about a month ago and was advised that they would have to order a part to fix this recall and they would call me when the part came in. They did not call me and after a few weeks I called back and was told that the part has not come in yet as there are so many vehicles that need this recall and Nissan does not have the parts to handle all of the requests. I was advised that someone would call me to discuss this and I never received that phone call. My son (weight about 105 lbs) is often in the front passenger seat and sometimes the airbag light is on and sometimes it is off, so I do not trust it to function properly in the event of an accident. I simply want to have this recall handled asap by Nissan. Please let me know if there is anything else that can be done. Thank you, rebecca winfrey

Takata recall airbags failed when I was doing 5 mph and was side swiped. The fire dept had to cut me out of the vehicle. I needed staples in my head and was unconscious because the other driver was doing 20_30 mph according to police report. Nissan refused to change me into a new vehicle despite my disabled status and fear of driving it. I called twice and went by dealer who agreed the should have worked.

I have received notification twice now from Nissan, that the OCS has a recall and is a safety issue. If the OCS is not working right, the airbag won't deploy correctly. I have contacted Nissan multiple times over the past several months to get this fixed and they say they don't have the parts to fix this recall. Major safety concern!

I've been trying to get local Nissan dealer to address several recalls on my vehicle since June 2016. I was told by my local and surrounding Nissan dealerships that they do not have the parts and do not know when Nissan would ship the parts to local dealership for the recall. I've called local Nissan every month since June 2016 to ask if the parts are in but to no avail.

OCS problem with airbag; guess this would be the takata inflator; not sure. Received recall notice in may and dealer still does not have recall part. So no one can ride in my passenger seat; very inconvenient. And unsafe; spent alot of money on this vehicle.

I received a recall notice several months ago informing me of an airbag issue. The letter stated that parts were not available to fix the issue and a 2nd letter would be sent when the parts are available. Reference recall 16V-224. I find it completely unacceptable to have recall and have T wait over 6 months to receive parts to remedy the issue. Meanwhile I am driving around with a car that has an airbag issue

I received a notice of recall (NHTSA recall 16V-244) 3 months ago however have been unable to get Nissan to repair passenger airbag. They claim they can't get the parts. I reported this problem several times since 2014 to no avail. It wasn't until recall that Nissan even acknowledged this problem. The light on the front passenger airbag stays lit with someone sitting in the seat. Passenger weight is 130-175 lbs and it still illuminates. What recourse do I have here.
